When one thinks of premises liability cases, they likely think of slip-and-fall incidences. While falls due to slips and trips frequently give rise to these cases, these are not the only accidents that could take place on the property of another. Whether it is private or public property, a property owner owes a duty to visitors. He or she has the duty to keep their property clear of any hazards. That means warning visitors of any known dangers and repairing hazards as soon as possible.
When an individual in Florida is invited onto the property of another, whether as a visitor or customer, he or she is under the impression that the property is safe. Unfortunately this is not always the case, which is why the attorneys at The Briggs Law Firm are focused on guiding clients through these challenging matters and helping them recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and all other losses associated with the incident.
Our law firm understands that there is a lot at stake for property owners when faced with liability for an accident that occurred on their property. Oftentimes, property owners will do anything in their power to avoid liability. Our attorneys are aware of this, which is hwy we are prepared to prove the elements of a premises liability action whether they occurred at a private home, office building, hotel, apartment complex, public pool, amusement park, sports arena, retail store or mall, grocery store, restaurant, nursing home, or any other property. This means assessing the cause of the incident and whether the negligence of the property owner contributed to the accident to any degree.
In addition to valiantly fighting to impose liability, our legal team also seeks to recover compensation for the full extent of our clients’ harms. This includes consideration of future medical expenses and lost earning capacity. Our goal is to make our clients whole again by aiding them in their efforts to recover compensation for the damages suffered.
A sudden accident could significantly impact one’s life. When an accident is caused by the negligence of another party, it may be possible to hold that party accountable. This could help with the resulting losses and damages caused by the incident, as the party at fault may be required to compensate a victim for any losses suffered.
